More Information

The word small in the definiton should not be taken too literally.

The pun of the word naw'wat is that "NowWhat" is the name of an isolated, backwater planet in Mostly Harmless, the fifth book of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series. When the settlers arrived at this miserable planet in the middle of nowhere, the first thing they said was, "Now what?" It's an entire planet, but compared to the vast scale of the galaxy, with all the interesting things in it, this lousy, awful, and isolated planet is a naw'wat. (David Trimboli on the Mailing list, on September 12, 2021)
